NASA X: Environmentally Responsible Aviation The aircraft of today are quieter, more efficient and stronger than anyone could have imagined even a few short years ago. Future aircraft will continue this trend and become even more efficient and dependable, reaching unimaginable goals that today's aircraft could never reach. But how will they reach these goals and who is doing the important work to change the way we all fly?

|NASA X_Revolutionary Evolution - NASA X|
Follow members of the Environmentally Responsible Aviation team as they conduct a variety of tests on exciting, new aircraft designs that are in the early stages of development. See how these initial designs and ideas are moved through the NASA pipeline from computer drawings and wind tunnel models, all the way to scale-model aircraft and full-scale flights. Each new step brings us closer to flying onboard revolutionary aircraft that are safer, more efficient, and quieter.

|Inflatable Re Entry Vehicle Experiment - AMA Studios|
IRVE-3 is part of NASA’s Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (HIAD) Project, which aims to provide the agency with a less-expensive and modular means to return space capsules--those carrying cargo from the International Space Station, for instance--to Earth safely despite the high forces and temperatures that act on them during reentry. Doing so could make travel to and from earth orbit far more economical while also providing a tested and certified platform that could be readily ada...
